Eye Treatment Unit

Sight gives us the opportunity to live life in the way we choose

When our sight is impacted by natural degeneration and disease it's important to talk to an expert to gain the best guidance.

Our dedicated Ophthalmology Unit provides eye disease screening, consultations for eye problems and treatments for degenerative eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

If you have noticed changes to your eyesight, speak to an expert. Sulis Hospital Ophthalmology Unit offers private patients timely access to highly experienced consultant ophthalmologists (eye surgeons), advanced diagnostic services and treatments.

Dedicated eye unit

Our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to treating issues of the eye.

Conditions we treat include glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, retinal disease, squint and failing vision.

We also offer cataract surgery, lens implant surgery to reduce reliance on glasses and laser surgery to improve vision.

Our highly experienced team of consultant ophthalmologists perform thousands of procedures each year.

Consultations and treatments are all carried out here in the Specialist Eye Unit.

You will see the same consultant ophthalmologist throughout your treatment and be supported by a team of specialist nurses.

Treatment within two weeks

We aim to provide treatment within two weeks of your diagnosis. You will be seen by the same consultant ophthalmologist throughout your treatment and be supported by a team of specialist nurses.

Your appointment will be with an experienced consultant who specialises in eye health. They’ll have a detailed chat with you about your symptoms, your concerns and your previous medical history.

Depending on the symptoms you’re experiencing, it’s likely that the consultant will recommend further eye tests or scans. They will always explain why an examination is happening and what it is for.

Your consultant may want to arrange further tests to support their diagnosis. We always try to arrange these on the same day. The tests may (or may not) include:

• Blood test: To check if there are any signs of inflammation or infection that may be causing your symptoms

• Ultrasound scan

• CT scan

We understand that a long wait for results can create additional worry, discomfort and uncertainty, which is why we make timely diagnosis a priority for our patients.

After your initial consultation, it may be that your condition can be managed using non-surgical interventions, such as eye drops, lifestyle changes, medication or prescription glasses.

If further intervention is recommended, the consultant will make sure you're informed about the procedure and will answer any questions you might have. We aim to treat patients within two weeks of their diagnosis.

If you do require treatment for an eye concern, you can rest assured that our medical team includes some of the top eye specialists in the country:

• Experienced consultants: Collectively, they have performed in excess of 100,000 cataract procedures.

• Multidisciplinary team: We have built an incredibly strong and diverse team of like-minded medical experts. They work together every day to achieve the best possible results for everyone they treat.

You may be covered by private medical insurance, or you may wish to consider spreading the cost of your surgery by opting for a monthly payment plan.

We aim to make our costs as transparent as possible, but it’s important to talk everything through in detail with your consultant at the time of your appointment. Some costs may be paid directly to the hospital, while others, such as your consultant fees, may be paid directly to the consultant.
